new year... new... lighting?!
with the Christmas and New Year festivities over again for another year, you might now be thinking of spending your extra pennies on some new home comforts, but with the recession hitting everyone hard, it may just be those small luxuries that will make all the difference to your home.
One thing that can change the whole mood of a room is the lighting, and I am currently in love with anything industrial in this category... I think it can work well within many interiors and can be used almost anywhere.... your kitchen, living room, bathroom, study.....
For example, a stainless steel anglepoise style lamp could fit into any colour scheme, and will give a chic addition to any table....
or for a less hard look, this is similar to one I recently picked up from Planet Bazaar:
Here you can see how pendant lighting can look great in both a kitchen or bedroom, so why not experiment? (both pics from Living Etc Magazine)
